Developmental Trauma Overview

Many parents of children who had a rough start in life have at least heard of developmental trauma. However, I’ve noticed there is still a lot of confusion out there about it.

This course offers a detailed look at what developmental trauma is, what is it not, and how early childhood trauma exposure affects kids and their ability to function in all areas of life…often for life!

Whether you’re new to the wonderful world of parenting traumatized children or you’ve been parenting kids with Reactive Attachment Disorder, Complex PTSD, FASD or other related conditions for a long time, I recommend you take this course!

It’s FREE, and it isn’t very long, but the fundamental information I share in this course lays the foundation for truly being able to understand and reach your child.

Developmental Trauma Course

What is Developmental Trauma?:  This lesson covers the basics of what REAL trauma is, why we call it developmental trauma, and when it causes the most damage to kids.

All About ACEs:  This lesson covers the ins and outs of ACEs, or Adverse Childhood Experiences. You’ll learn about the ACEs study, why it matters, and where you can take the test for yourself and your kids.

The Long-Term Effects of Trauma: You’ll learn about all the different conditions that can fall under the umbrella of Developmental Trauma and how these issues compound on each other and affect every aspect of a child’s life…often for life.

Course Workbook

This course includes a printable or electronically fillable workbook to help you apply what you learn from each of the lessons. It will also guide you through the process of identifying each of the common conditions related to developmental trauma.

Through that process, you’ll also be able to clearly understand the similarities and differences between the conditions and see why our kids are so frequently misdiagnosed and under-treated.

Bonus Lesson!

Learn how to easily create your own set of highly personalized tools to educate others and help them understand the complexities of developmental trauma and conditions (Reactive Attachment Disorder, FASD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Complex PTSD, etc.)
